Ngiare Brown: Gov't must listen to remote communities on dole changes

A prominent health expert says governments have largely refused to take notice of community feedback when implementing policies affecting Indigenous communities.

On the weekend, the Federal Government announced its proposed changes for remote welfare policy, with jobseekers having to work for the dole five-days-a-week for 12 months in the year.

In city and regional areas, jobseekers only have to take part for six months.

Deputy Chair of the Indigenous Advisory Council, Professor Ngiare Brown (pictured), says policy makers need to look at evidence and run impact assessments.

She told Koori Radio the intended and unintended results of each policy must be identified.
